. amusingly as he is touring the state to celebrate the u.s. constitution a judge has ruled that his signature piece of legislation is unconstitutional. under a host of protections cained in the federal and state constitution. now we get into the question for the courts. this ruling is going to unleash a host of legal actions. because the ruling did not cover state employees, just municipal and school district employees, state employee unions will be in court asking to expap it to cover them. there will be additional legal fights to determine whether where this ruling comes down and what it means to different people, but the key fight will be the governor's attempt to restore via the courts. he can't pass it through the legislature anymore. in the recall election his legislative control was removed from him. so we're going to have a real legal battle. if it gets to the state supreme court there is no question. state appellate courts lean away from him, and there is still a parallel federal suit going forward, and that suit goes on the same constitutional issues s

. in cairo protestors continued to gather en masse outside the burned u.s. embassy and egyptian forces fired teargas in attempts to get them to disperse. similar protests also appeared in iran, iraq, bangladesh, morocco, sudan and tunisia. in libyan, there was a gathering design to show appreciation for the united states. hundreds of libyans amassed outside the consulate, airing signs denouncing yesterday's violent destruction which led to the death of u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three others. in addition libyan authorities arrested four men suspected of instigating the protests. president obama called both egyptian president morsi and magariaf. the two calls had decidedly different tones. president obama expressed appreciation to libyan president magariaf for the cooperation received from the libyan government and people in responding to the attack. though questions still remain about the role libyan terrorists played in escalating the attacks. with respect to egypt the president had made an interesting comme

at least according to the u.s.--deputy u.n. ambassador for the libyans now coming out and saying that up to ten libyan security personnel were killed or wounded in the attack on wednesday. if that is true. you add ten libyan people killed or wounded trying to defend our ambassador. that would make it a very different story. you would go from being angry at the libyans to going these guys laid down their lives for us. ambassador chris stevens was a man who supported the revolution, he was instrumental in it, and had great friends in the libyan government, among the libyan rebels, etc. now we just got news that the two u.s. warships have been moved near libya. all of this as a way of showing we're not messing around, and the libyan government is on our side and not messing around here. president obama had more on this. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respect all states. we reject the denigration of beliefs of others. there is no justification for this type of senseless violence, none. the world must stand together to reject these brutal acts. >> cenk: i want

, subsidized industries and protective tariffs. countries like china. between 2001 and 2010 the u.s. lost half of all of its auto parts jobs. most of them went to china. our market has been flooded with a 700% increase in chinese-made auto parts in that same period of time. so how did those u.s. jobs move? because multinational companies took advantage of china's aggressive moves to and they relocated there. a company called global tech appliances for instance. publicly acknowledged that its strategy was to profit from prominent u.s. companies outsourcing production abroad. that, of course is what outsourcing is all about. and one way china creates a tilted playing field is by adding duties and tariffs, basically fees to us-made products that come into their country. like china receives our products and there is a fee on it when the u.s. exports auto parts to china. they have actually put $36 billion worth of duties on us-made auto parts experts. that's 80% of our experts that are marked up just for being american. that makes our products more expensive in china. it means

. this is nothing new. no one says oh community organizer in it in the 1990s. no the banks profited more by giving out more risky loans. they got higher rates and that's why. the federal reserve says that. this is totally and utterly made up. that lawsuit that they're talking about, here is a quote about that. the final agreement settling the case did not require citibank to accept any loan applications. so even on the merits of that case they're ridiculous. finally obama was quote the very european lawyer in that case, and not visible during court proceedings. according to the committee the "chicago sun times." the idea that obama was behind it is more asinine than anything fox news has come up before, and that's quite clear. we go to tricia rose, professor, this goes to a larger theme, who they want to blame and who they tension--our attention from. >> cenk, this larger theme is so compulsive. it's worthy of a psychological designation. any time there is an opportunity to blame poor and vulnerable people they take it. in this case there is the reimagining of the history of what has been over a h
-- went through the party platforms in the '60s, they called for an equal rights amendment to the constitution in the republican platforms. they were very open to equal pay for equal work to a lot of those issues. he has shut down the moderate wing of the republican party. >> jennifer: i totally agree. are you surprised though that there hasn't been a shake-up in the campaign? >> i am a little bit, to be honest with you. i'm kind of surprised that he is not brought in some other advisors who have a different outlook on the race. i mean look, he limped out of the primaries the only reason he won those primaries is because he won them ugly and he eviscerated his very weak opponents with five to one six to one, nine to one advantages in some of the states in terms of campaign spending. and you know, the one thing that's happened with the democrats, thank goodness, last month is finally we've beaten romney in fund-raising. i think you know, they're going to beat us. they're going to spend more money, they always wi
, pass the grey poupon then just be quiet! >> jennifer: back in 1926, the peak of the roar '20s and three years before the great wall street crash sent this country spiraling into a deep depression, f. scott fitzgerald, famously wrote "let me tell you about the very rich. they are different from you and me." now, he wasn't talking simply about their vast material wealth. but about their world view. as nobel prize winning economist paul krugman put it "many of the very rich expect a level of deference that the rest of us never experience and are deeply distressed when they don't get the special treatment they consider their birth right." now, perhaps no one embodies that world view more than mitt romney who held his now infamous may fund rares at the home of private equity billionaire mark leader who according to the "new york post," is famous for his extravagant gatbiesque parties. it was at that boca raton home that romney said this... our message of low taxes doesn't connect. and so my cut is not to worry about t

. christopher stevens and three other u.s. officials were killed last night. details about the attacks are still coming in, but here is the latest of what we do know. back in july an incendiary ridiculous movie about muslims was released reportedly by a guy named sam sam sam bacile. he claims to be an israeli. it's not clear who he is, whether he is an israeli and whether a guy named sam bacile exists. but it was so offensive that the grand musti of jackpot condemned it. and roughly 2,000 demonstrators assembleed around the u.s. embassy in cairo. the diplomatic workers inside that embassy saw this protest developing and they understandably were worried about their safety by this situation that was developing. they calmed them down saying, the embassy of the united states in kay row condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt religious feelings of muslims as we condemn hurt thosecondemn efforts to offend believers of all religious. later, no one was hurt and protesters eventually disbanded. as that situation in egypt was winding down, the situation in libya was getting worse.
to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce here in l.a. both the president and the romney campaign have plans to shift their focus to the economy this week. romney's planned speech the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce will talk about balancing the budget by eliminating nonessential federal programs and to cut down on federal employment through consolidation. he's promising to fix the imgreat lakes -- the immigration system with an emphasis on border control. >> trade has to work for america. that means crack down on cheaters like china and open up new markets. next, we have to balance the budget. cut the deficit. got to stop spending more money than we take in. >> speaking of china, the white house is asking the world trade organization today to stop china from putting unfair taxes on u.s.-made vehicles and in a second separate request stop china from financially undermining u.s. auto part exports. today is the one-year anniversary of the occupy wall street movement. protestors have already started to gather in the
gentleman rightsyria, egypt, and now we see them taking out our u.s. ambassador in libya. this is not because of a movie. the movie is an excuse. this happened on 9/11. this is a serious developing situation that has been developing for four to nine months dependent depending on which country you're looking at. mitt romney as president would have already--take syria 18 months ago would have been working covertly to figure out who the good guys are help them, give them arms, organize them. we're not talking about putting u.s. troops there. that's always something that the liberals like to push on us, that we want war. no republican wants war. that's a fact. i don't think mitt romney is going to be committing u.s. troops very quickly. >> eliot: rick let me interrupt, time is short. i don't disagree with you about syria. it could be that the administration is already doing that at a covert level. we wouldn't know but i think there has been a fair bit of bipartisan criticism that there should have been more intervention when it comes to syria. but libya leading the islamic pa

, the s&p 500 is up nearly 15% year to date. but this is what fox news does when the facts don't confirm with their version of reality, they call the data skewed. >> it's very strange that big unemployment number seems to be skewed. the department may be becoming a bit partisan. i state on air, and the left goes absolutely bonkers and call me a conspiracy theorist. >> jennifer: maybe that's because you are. if fox news hosts don't like reality, they just make up their own version of events. >> the romney campaign has sent a lot of time asking a question from 1980. are you better off than four years ago, when any damn fool knows that in 2008 this country was in crisis. why would you pick that year as your fourth-year comparison. >> jennifer: i love it. really? lou dobbs campaigning that the it is just a fool. but it's the polls too which now show that the president has significant leads nationwide and in the key swing states repeatedly. but to republicans that reality simply doesn't add up so they did what they do on all scientific issues they found a, quote, scientist w
an incredibly difficult time getting out of the mid 40s. obama at 48, 49, 50, and romney at 35. what we're seeing in the previous years, it's the smallest it's before been at this stage of the race. in 1980, 35% of the voters were undecided. now, 5%. that's it. they told pollsters they're sold on their decision. there >> eliot: that absence of undecided voters, and this is a race is about passion not persuasion. it's not enter wading undecide. it's having those with who are already with you to have the passion to turn out on election day. that seems to be the variable that pollsters have a hard time measuring. and i hope it's not the case but it still could be that the passion on the romney side turns deeper and turnout could be higher in that universe. is that something that the obama campaign has to worry about? >> of course they have to worry did. i'm looking at the data. i'm not worried about it. there is a way that pollsters can measure voter intensity. in 2008 we had the higher intenseity. and it showed in the polls. this year it slips in the convention, public intensity went dow

instead of condemning their actions. >> romney is basing that off of a statement from the u.s. embassy in cairo saying it does not support the criticism of muslims' religious beliefs. not only was that statement never approved by washington, it was also issued four hours before the attacks in an effort to calm the situation down. president obama, in fact, did condemn the attacks and said he is shocked romney would play politics during a time the united states is still mourning the loss of four of its diplomats. romney is now seeing a big backlash from those statements, even from conservatives but a few are actually taking his side. former secretary of state henry kissinger says he can understand romney's severe reaction to the violence. jim demint called romney absolutely right on libya and senator jon kyl said the u.s. embassy's response is the same as blaming a rape victim and then asking them for an apology. more bill press is coming up live after the break. we're live in chat, we have a

. >> bill: this is p.o.t.u.s.' glass. >> that's barack obama's water glass. >> bill: the fanciest little water glass. it was right there behind the podium. i've seen glasses like this often at the white house when they bring one out when the president is going to do a news conference. i'll bet you this is an official white house secret service glass. this was all in back of the podium this morning. so how about that. >> there you go. an exclusive. >> bill: a "full court press" exclusive! here on this friday morning. we've got a good line-up for you. terry o'neill, president of the national organization for women is going to be coming by here at the arena. there's no security this morning so anybody can walk in. major garrett will be here as a "friend of bill" later and karl frisch from bullfight strategies will be along as well. and we'll tell you and get your calls about bill clinton -- that was the night before. barack obama and joe biden last night. 1-866-55-press. but first... >> this is the "full court
support americans and we're sorry for what happened to ambassador stevens whon s see qu ters inarrs libya is a hero. one of the issues is that our embassies are not properly protected. the state department is going to get $300 million less in 2012. states the state democratic, our embagses. the defense department by comparison gets way more than 10 times as much, $614 billion. gives you a sense of our priorities. now, meanwhile egypt it's actually a different situation and even though no one has gotten killed, that might be a tougher situation that we've got there. let's show you some of the protests there first again a report from abc news. >> protestors took to the streets of cairo again this morning. they broke through a barbed wire barricade. tensions ablaze over a trailer depicting the prophet muhammed as a womanizer and fraud. >> what president obama said to telemundo is more concerning. >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. they were democraty elected. we're going to have

headline to thurston howell iii the clueless millionaire in the '60s tv comedy gilligan's island before writing and i quote... national review editor rich lowery compared romney's remarks to and i quote someone who overheard some conservative cocktail chatter and maybe read a conservative blog or two and is thoughtlessly repeating back what he heard and read. romney also shared his thoughts on the israeli palestinian counsel to the fund-raiser. mother jones released that video today. here's part of what romney said. we have a potentially volatile situation. we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately somehow, something will happen. >> eliot: romney took to fox news this afternoon to explain his comments on taxes and the so-called 47%. romney didn't try to apologize for his remarks which he said contrasted his commitment to free enter vise to what he called the president's preference for expanding government but he did manage, get this to get in a good word for taxes. >> romney: i do believe that we sh
in developing nations. and in exchange for removing the barriers and opening their markets to u.s. investment and trade, developing nations will receive u.s. assistance packages. >> eliot: romney said in a typical dig against president obama he would never apologize for america as fact checkers have shown the president hasn't but never mind the facts. after leaving new york, romney joined congressman ryan in ohio for two days of campaign and according to the latest "washington post" poll, it is an uphill battle likely voters in ohio favoring president obama over romney by 52% to 44%. romney also trails in florida where likely voters prefer the president by 4 points. ohio and florida are among 8 swing states that will be seeing this obama ad, attacking romney for his derogatory comments about americans who don't pay federal income tax. >> mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling their weight, he attacked millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000 $45,000 a year. they pay social security taxes
, i've been out of work since may. she was in her 50s. i don't see any prospects. can you help me? >> jennifer: now as hard as it is for some to picture mitt romney's heart actually aching for people especially people in the dreaded 47% i actually think that this is a good strategy for him. he has to show emotion. he has to show that he can empathize with everyday americans and that's something that actually president obama doesn't really need to prove because voters seem to understand that he cares. but what they're less sure of is the president's plan for the future and so that's why today the president laid out very specific economic proposals such as double exports create a million new manufacturing jobs. >> obama: right now, i'm asking you to choose a better path than the one that my opponents offer. one that helps big factories and small businesses double their exports. that sells more goods stamped with made in america than the rest of the world. we can create one million new manufacturing jobs in the next four
